Mkhonto, Ms C N to ask the Minister of Arts and Culture

Whether his department has deposited the R7 million that he promised will be deposited into the Liliesleaf trust as he stated during a briefing on 5 March 2022 that his department will intervene in the Liliesleaf financial crisis; if not; what are the reasons that his department failed keep the promise; if so, on what date was the specific amount deposited?


No, the Department has not deposited the R7 million into the Liliesleaf Trust Account. However, the R7 million was transferred into the account of Freedom Park to assist Liliesleaf with its financial crisis. The funds were paid into the account of Freedom Park because the Liliesleaf Board is still implementing the recommendations of the Board’s investigation on the funding that it had received in 2015.
